Eremophila glabra-Common Emu Bush

This Emu Bush is a smaller-sized shrub, reaching at most 3' tall and wide.  Foliage is silvery-gray, and covered with many small hairs.  This foliage color provides great contrast for the bright red flowers that are produced almost year-round, usually from about March through October. Full sun is best, although plants will also grow in partial shade. Native across much of Australia.
